Even if the size of the room allows, you should not put a large Christmas tree in the nursery. Better a few, but small and throughout the room. There are a lot of options to make a Christmas tree with your own hands, you just need to choose which one your baby wants. A Christmas tree made of a cardboard cone, wrapped in tinsel, is the simplest and most common option. It is stable and can be done in 10 minutes..
But it is not necessary to make just a classic Christmas tree, you can be creative and make a Christmas tree from buttons or threads.
If there is absolutely no room on the shelves and tables, you can make a Christmas tree on the wall.
Draw a triangle on the wall with a simple pencil, and within this triangle, stick with double-sided tape or pins various toys and figures cut out of multi-colored paper.
Probably, everyone in childhood cut snowflakes from napkins and glued them to the windows. It was a special ritual, meaning that the New Year is very close..
But if earlier only a few were able to cut beautiful figures, now everyone can do it thanks to templates and stencils. It is enough to copy the picture to your computer, enlarge the template to the desired size, attach a sheet of paper to the monitor and trace the outline around the drawing. You can decorate the window with figures cut out according to such templates, and if you take a thicker paper, then the tree itself.
Snowflakes are more complicated, you cannot copy them, but if you are careful, you will definitely succeed. Or you can show your imagination or awaken inspiration in yourself.
You have a few examples of inspiration, so get started immediately. This activity is very exciting, and soon there will be enough snowflakes not only for the nursery, but for the whole house, and there will also be enough for neighbors. We glue snowflakes in the old fashioned way – we make a soapy solution, apply it to the glass with a brush or sponge, apply a snowflake and also gently straighten it with a sponge.
If you think paper snowflakes are too rough, make a stencil of them on the window. In the same way, glue it on a soapy solution, wait a little until the snowflake dries up, and spray the window with artificial snow from a can, then carefully remove the paper snowflake.
For window decorations, you can add a “curtain” of cotton balls strung on long threads.
Unfortunately, you will have to give up candles in the nursery, because the safety of children comes first. Although they look great in a festive interior, it is better to give preference to New Year’s electric garlands in the children’s room. Check the performance of the garlands, determine a place for them, better away from the bed, and proceed with the installation. Usually they are mounted around the perimeter of the room under the ceiling, above the windows and the door..
For a children’s room, it is better to use those garlands that are made for indoor use. Bright, outdoor garlands shine too brightly and, with their flickering, can cause a headache in the baby.
Christmas wreath – a symbol of Christmas and New Year.
It can be hung on the outside of the door, placed on a shelf or placed on a table. If you do not adhere to strict Catholic traditions, but focus solely on your taste, then a wreath can be made from anything. Buttons, cones, candies, just small toys from kinder surprises or ribbons are suitable for this..
If you have indoor flowers, make Santa’s deer faces out of them. It looks very cute and cannot help but bring a smile. And all you need is acrylic paints or stickers of black and white colors, a piece of fur for the nose, well, and a little imagination.
Don’t ignore textiles either. Of course, you should not specifically buy bed linen with Christmas trees and deer for the New Year, but you can add a little of the holiday here. Covers with applique on sofa cushions can be quickly made by yourself.
Do you have templates for windows? Use them for cushion applique.
Same with chair covers.
But remember, this is a holiday, so don’t make it work. Do everything in a good mood, and then the New Year will definitely bring you joy and good luck, and the nursery will fill you with joy and fun. Let ringing children’s laughter always sound in your house!
